Newbie qusetion, about unicode

Hello,
I’m a beginner to Rails.
I has a problem about unicode when I tried some example code like
below:

say_controller.rb:

class SayController < ApplicationController
def list
@files = Dir.glob(’*’)
end
end

application.rb:

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base

Pick a unique cookie name to distinguish our session data from

others’
session :session_key => ‘_HelloRails_session_id’
before_filter :configure_charsets

def configure_charsets
response.headers[“Content-Type”] = “text/html; charset=utf-8”

suppress(ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid) do

ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute ‘SET NAMES utf8’

end

end
end

list.rhtml:

File List
    <% for file in @files %>
  • <%= file %>
  • <% end %>
=========

When there is a directory with Chinese characters, I got wrong
characters (the are in GB18030), why it was not in UTF-8?

I haven’t sorted out all UTF-8 yet, but I’ve learned that you need to
add this to the top of the environment.rb file:

$KCODE = ‘UTF8’

Also, be sure to use Rails’ Multibyte API when working with UTF8
strings.
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveSupport/Multibyte/Chars.html

I don’t know if these will solve all your needs, but it’s the place
to start.

Thanks Greg,

I thikn the problem is, the

@files = Dir.glob(’*’)

got strings that is not in UTF-8 encoding, and the I tried to trade them
as
UTF-8. There may needs conversions.

BTW, is

$KCODE = ‘UTF8’

the same as

$KCODE = ‘u’


Best Regards!
